Thomas Dono, 34, Letterio "Lenny" DeCarlo, 47, and Edmund "Eddie" Boyle, 43, were charged Wednesday with the 1998 killing of a suspected informant, according to reports in the New York Daily News and Newsday.
According to prosecutors, the three men killed Frank Hydell outside a Staten Island, NY, strip club because they feared he would reveal what he knew of the 1997 slaying of construction foreman Frank Parasole at a Brooklyn social club. The prosecutors say Dono, DeCarlo and Boyle are associates of the Gambino Crime Family.
Hydell was shot in the head and chest at midnight April 27, 1998, outside of Scarlet's club.
Dono was arrested early Tuesday. DeCarlo and Boyle are in federal prison on unrelated charges.
